These are served at Norwich City Football Club and are always enjoyed by vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. They can be made in advance, if entertaining, and are a brilliant way to incorporate healthy pulses in the diet.

This is my adaptation of an Elizabeth David recipe. I never actually made it from her book, but one of my favourite restaurants, Chez Bruce, in Wandsworth, London, regularly serves it as a first course.

Grilled Spanish Onion Salad

I am constantly amazed after all my years of cooking at how there can be anything new – but there always is, again and again. This is an example, utterly simple, yet quite unlike any other salad.
